Nonviolent communication (NVC)

Nonviolent Communication offers us a new way of seeing the world that helps us better understand ourselves and other people so we can create more real connection in our relationships.

NVC can guide us to find more clarity and compassion for what’s going on in ourselves and others, what motivates our behaviour, to find more choice and authenticity, and to find courage to name and ask for what would enrich us, without shame. It is a way to see our shared humanity and the universal human needs we all have, and to see beyond our different strategies.

We run events, workshops and practice groups based on nonviolent communication (NVC). Find out more below…

NVC workshops

We are hoping to organise more weekend / multi day events in the hills near Hebden Bridge in the near future which will be an opportunity to spend time together in nature, make connections, learn and practice NVC, give and receive support, and have fun!

NVC practice groups

We currently facilitate a weekly practice group on Wednesdays 4-6pm. We meet at members’ houses and work through exercises to practice the skills of Nonviolent Communication, and also hold space for empathic listening and sharing both as a group and in pairs.

We’re considering starting another weekly group on Monday evenings.

Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining either group by email at

Calderdale NVC Community

There is a growing warm and friendly NVC community in Calderdale. We meet to connect, support each other in integrating nvc and principles of nonviolence, build community and find mutual support.


Please get in touch or sign up to our mailing list for more information.

Tom W & Viv are both NVC practitioners on the path towards NVC certification (an accreditation process that takes 3-5 years to complete).
